Texas Tech Soccer Team Wins Scrimmage

LUBBOCK, Texas -- In their first action of the season, the Texas Tech women's soccer team shutout West Texas A&M, 5-0.

Red Raider senior midfielder Julie Clement got the action started when she scored on a header in the 14th minute of play. Clement added another goal in the 39th minute when she rokceted a shot from 15 feet outside the box. The Red Raiders final goal of the half came right on the heels of the second as sophomore forward Kristy Frantz scored on the ensuing kickoff. Tech entered halftime with a 3-0 lead.

In second half action, freshman midfielder Whitney Myers scored in the 77th minute followed by a final goal from junior midfielder Amy Rutstein in the 88th minute.

"Overall the effort was good. This was our first opportunity to play someone other than ourselves. We got a chance to see where we are and where we need to go. We need to play faster and make better decisions," first year head coach Felix Oskam said.

The Red Raiders will have less than a week to prepare for their official home opener. Tech will host New Mexico on Friday at 4 p.m. and then turn around to play Mississippi on Sunday at 1 p.m. Both contests will be held at R.P. Fuller Stadium.
